  Diab Free with great nutrition treatment

  Mary-Jay Health and Education

  Good health from good nutrition

  If you've not been diagnose with diabetes and you wonder how you can stay free from it, start here with these tips from American Dietetic Association:

  Eat more starches such as bread, cereal, and starchy vegetables. Aim for six servings a day or more. For example, have cold cereal with nonfat milk or a bagel with a teaspoon of jelly for breakfast. Another starch-adding strategy is to add cooked black beans, corn or garbanzo beans to salads or casseroles.

  Eat five fruits and vegetables every day. Have a piece of fruit or two as a snack, or add vegetables to chili, stir-fried dishes or stews. You can also pack raw vegetables for lunch or snacks.

  Eat sugars and sweets in moderation. Include your favorite sweets in your diet once or twice a week at most. Split a dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth while reducing the sugar, fat and calories.

  Caution of Ginseng Herb

  Ginseng is an extremely popular herbal medicine, and it may be used alone, as tea, or in combination with other herbal medicines in a compound formula. On its own, ginseng tends to reduce glucose levels in people with or without diabetes. But when taken by people on medication to control their diabetes, an interaction may occur, resulting in hypoglycemia.

  If you are taking any herbal drugs or natural supplements containing ginseng, be sure to tell your healthcare provider.
